Jimmy Taylor, Cattle Rancher – U.S. Meat Export Federation, Treasurer of Beef Council
Jimmy Taylor and his wife Tracy own and operate Taylor Ranch which is located south of Cheyenne, Oklahoma. His great grandfather started putting the ranch together in 1914. It has grown to 12,000 owned and leased acres in the heart of the rolling red-shale hills of western Oklahoma.
